Filing, business relocation and workspace consultants
++(0)207 100 6789

What we do

Fileworks offer a range of services, split broadly into the following three work streams:
Business relocation
Workspace consultancy
Filing and storage management
We can also provide a complete package, or deliver any of the phases detailed here as stand alone pieces of work, in conjunction with your Facilities Management team and/or other partners. 
If your business needs to change its workspace in any way, we can help.

The four phases detailed below showcase the breadth of services on offer. They can span all three work streams, or can apply specifically to one work stream, depending on the job in question.

Assessment and recommendations

Evaluation of people

Evaluation of aspirations
Gain a deep understanding of your business culture, goals and needs.
Compile a detailed and accurate report, with considered recommendations tailored to your business goals.
